Golem

Earth, Waning Crescent (5)

Keywords:

Synthetic, artificial in nature, a creation of humanity, soulless

Reversed Meaning:

Natural, organic, something which complements its environment

Basic Interpretation:

Animate, yet without life, the Golem is the epitome of humanity's unnatural creations. While the Golem bears superficial tokens of human nature and appearance, it exists outside of the natural cycles of life and death. It has no inner beauty, nor does it have any intrinsic ties to nature itself.

Objects:

A lump of clay, glass, synthetic materials, a mace, a monument honoring a mortal.

Plot Suggestions:

A "Frankenstein's Monster" is created by a mage and released upon the unsuspecting village; doppelgangers invade the realm; the characters run afoul of counterfeiters and forgers.
